I used fresh seafood mix pack from fishmongers which was OK but lacked variety- it was basically salmon! Nice dish though, especially since using only 4 lasagne sheets significantly reduces carb content of regular lasagne. Didn't have griddling facilities so grilled courgettes which was fiddly. Assembled dish needed all 30 minutes in oven.

tasty but found mixture a little loose, next time I will go with Nigel and I will try prawns with salmon or haddock and cod for a much firmer texture, other than that lovely and easy to make.

Yes, it's a pity there isn't more detail than just seafood mix, as I never buy frozen and would like to know what to buy fresh. Anyway I'll experiment - it sounds lovely

This is a great recipe really easy to do and takes no time at all. I didn't use a bag of seafood mix I used what I already had at hand which was haddock cut into chunks, muscles, and prawns next time I will use calamari as well maybe instead of the muscles which the wife wasn't fond of

This was pretty nice. I wasn't completely convinced when I read the recipe but gave it a go to use up some courgettes from the garden and a bag of seafood that had been in the freezer for a while. Cooked the courgettes on the griddle pan which gave them a great flavour. A pretty easy meal to assemble and tasted pretty good. I would make it again.

Very tasty dish - hard to believe it is low fat and healthy! It was pretty quick and easy too, although I did use a tin of chopped tomatoes and not passata, I added onion and garlic seperately. Well done Good Food!

Quite nice, I let the children assemble it and they enjoyed eating it.

Char-grilling the courgettes made them taste delicious, but I think 4 is too many...

I've just finished making/preparing this, its now sitting in the fridge waiting to be cooked tonight. I also added French beans and Thinly sliced red pepper to the lasagne. I'm serving it with a corn on the cob each. I don't want to serve it with garlic bread, as I would usually do with lasagne, because we are on a health kick and we had garlic bread last night.

This is really tasty. I replaced the seafood mix with 1 bit each of haddock, smoked haddock, salmon and some king prawns. I also added onions and mushrooms. Great for anyone doing weightwatchers, coming in with 8 propoints per serving.

If you prefer a less rich version, try the courgette lasagne at www.tasteforbologna.blogspot.com You can reduce even more the amount of fat by susbstituting a mixture of grated parmesan and water, quickly processed, for the top layer of bechamel sauce.
